According to the latest statistics published by The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), men account for nearly 10% of all cosmetic procedures surgical and non-surgical performed in the country and the number of men resorting to various cosmetic procedures is constantly growing.
So if you think that cosmetic surgery is a privilege for women…you’re wrong!
Given that Americans spent more than $ 15 billion on plastic surgeries in 2016, so about. Men alone spent $ 1.5 billion. And if you think that’s a lot…wait till you see the kind of care they spend money on.

- 11 The 10 Most Common Non-Surgical Procedures
The modern world offers a wide variety of delicious and unhealthy foods. Therefore, many men have the same problem of excess weight as women. Add to this the general lack of time, because we have work, family, children, smartphones, and it is clear that there is no time to go to the gym every week… right?
How to find the easy way? And lo and behold, quick liposuction comes to the rescue, without grueling workouts and wet armpits.
If you think cosmetic surgery is a privilege for women…think again!
2) Breast Reduction In Men-31,368
Sometimes we think that women are paying close attention to their Breast and turn to the help of plastic surgery. Statistics show that for men, this procedure is the second most popular among all cosmetic procedures that are paid for by men in the United States. The problem is caused by a hormonal imbalance or with serious weight loss, you want to quickly remove excess skin. In this case, resort to the procedure of gynecomastia-excess skin removes quickly and forever!
If you think only women have breast problems, you may be surprised by the number of men opting for breastwork on an annual basis. In fact, it is ranked the second most popular male cosmetic surgery in the United States. Men boobs are not just a distraction, it is a pure and simple embarrassment for many, especially for those who are caused by a hormonal imbalance or have experienced a major weight loss.
The Solution? A gynecomastia procedure that is fast, permanent and eliminates excess skin!
3) Eyelid Surgery – 28,025
We all know that a double eyelid can make your eyes look bigger and apparently, men know this beauty secret too and that’s why many are now getting their eyelids done. Blepharoplasty can also tighten and remove sagging skin around the eyes. You can have upper or lower eyelid surgery depending on whether you want to improve the shape of your eyes, fight to age, or both. The result is permanent and apparently, Kenny Rogers is a fan of this procedure too.
4) Nose – 26,205
There is a good reason that many men and women undergo rhinoplasty to change the shape of their nose. The nose is located in the center of your face and directly affects your entire facial structure and contour. This is why more than 25,000 men undergo nose surgery every year to embellish the tip of their nose, the bridge of the nose, to reshape their nostrils or alas.
What happens when all the cosmetics and beauty products men in the world no longer work because age is no longer on your side? Or worst…it it’s too late to deal with them with creams and masks because you’ve been too lazy in the past! Well … thanks to today’s advancements in cosmetic surgery and technology, you can now repair these deep wrinkles and soft skin by simply getting a facelift from your clinic.
The results are durable and can reverse your age by up to 10 years. If you look at stars like Keith Urban, there are signs that he might have used this procedure to support his youthful appearance.
6) Ear Surgery-10,457
For a woman, you can always hide your ears with long hair no matter how ridiculously funny, clumsy or embarrassing your ear shape seems. But for a man, it’s a totally different story and your ears can often be the focus of attention due to short haircuts.
So…there’s really only 3 solutions here:
1. Ignore the looks of these people…who cares?
2. Grow very long hair, like long females and continue to hide them.
4. Deal with her! Just get an ear correction surgery or otoplasty from a licensed plastic surgeon.
Having a large belly is one of the most common problems in men in America and if you are considered excessively overweight, then it can pose an even greater problem. This is because if you are trying to lose all the fat in your stomach, you will be left with a layer of excess skin that may seem rather discouraging, especially after all these sit-ups, running and intensive workouts.
Fortunately, there is a belly to get rid of that beer belly, all that fat skin stretched and sagging, leaving you with a beautiful belly and a manly waistline that could not otherwise be reached.
8) Neck Lift-6 319
Face lifting for men has become very popular over the past 5 years. It’s because as we get older, our neck becomes sensitive to sagging skin, excess fat and slackening muscles that give us a loose jaw, making us look older than we really are. This can also be a problem for those who have experienced extreme weight loss.
By having a neck lift procedure, you can correct these problems by tightening the underlying muscles, removing excess skin and eliminating your double chin, which ultimately improves the shape of your lower face and jaw contour.
9) Facial Fat Transfer – 5,653
Botox is not the only substance that can be injected into your face. There is also a technique known as contouring or facial fat transfer, in which fat is harvested from other parts of your body using liposuction procedure. The fat is then purified and injected into your face to increase volume, reduce wrinkles and bare acne scars.
The collected fat can be transferred to almost any part of your face (e.g. face cheeks, forehead, between eyebrows, etc.). Although the process takes more time, some men prefer this method over chemical substances because they are more natural (since you’re using your own body fat) and the results tend to last longer.
10) Brow Lift-3,418
Men who worry or too much stress will tend to find their eyebrows drooping causing deep lines between the eyebrows and along the front area. It can make you look wrinkled, grumpy and old. Of course, age also plays an important factor here, and that’s why some men are treating this surgical way. This procedure is called the browlift, also known as a forehead lift or browplasty.
The 10 Most Common Non-Surgical Procedures
1) Botulinum Toxin-453,281
Yes, you read well! More than 400,000 men received anti-aging injections such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin to give them youthful apparitions. These charges are the most popular choice for men and women because the treatment is fast, effective and will be cheaper as the popularity continues to skyrocket.
2) Hyaluronic Acid-168,788
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is naturally present in our body to keep our skin healthy and hydrated. Unfortunately, as we age, we can lose up to 2/3 of our HA and this is why our skin loses their elasticity and volume. Although topical solutions are available, nothing works better than direct penetration of skin cells using skin hydration injections including Juvederm Ultra, Ultra Plus, Voluma, Perlane, Restylane, and Belotero.
When done well, hepatitis A can effectively reconstitute healthy skin cells and repair damaged tissues for a fresh look. However, don’T forget the HA products that you can buy online and never do it yourself! Always consult and do these procedures by a qualified and trained professional.
Imagine doing all this muscle training just so you can show your beach body in the summer…but then your hair gets in your bags. Fortunately, there are depilation treatments available to answer these questions. You can choose laser or pulsed light procedures, and as most men like to keep some hair, you can always chat with your clinic to have your hair clarified instead of complete removal.
4) Photorejuvenation (IPL) – 60,749
We see a growing number of men going to beauty clinics to get IPL in recent years. IPL skin rejuvenation is a fast and painless process to treat uneven skin tones, pigmentation, sun-damaged skin, rosacea, and broken capillaries. It is a non-invasive procedure that uses IPL (intense pulsed light) or laser light to target imperfections without affecting the surrounding skin.
5) Chemical Coat-42 084
As with IPL, Chemical peeling is a skin rejuvenation process in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to cause the skin to peel off its outer layers. There are 4 main classes of chemical skins and depending on the depth of the skin, it can be used to remove/reduce freckles, brown spots, acne scars, scaly sunspots and also superficial wrinkles
Microdermabrasion is a machine treatment used to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells on the outermost or superficial layer of your skin to improve overall texture and quality. The treatments are fast and sweet, it almost looks like you have a face. Microdermabrasion can reduce hyperpigmentation, age spots, decrease fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars fade. By eliminating dead skin, it can also facilitate the penetration of care products up to 50%.
7) Non-Surgical Tightening Of The Skin-29,466
Men who do not wish to go under the knife such as facelift or forehead lift to get a skin tightening result can choose non-surgical procedures such as Ulth Erapy, Thermage or Pelleve. These techniques work by using ultrasound or radiofrequency energy to heat the underlying tissue and stimulate natural collagen production to create the elasticity, reduce wrinkles while giving the patient an effect tight and smooth.
8) full-field ablative (laser skin resurfacing) – 29,191
Aging, long-term exposure to the sun and the environment are some of the most common factors that contribute to bad skin. The time, air pollution and our diet can also accelerate the aging process of the skin. This is why some men choose full-field ablative laser procedures to treat conditions such as deep wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and severely damaged skin from the sun.
This technique involves removing the entire top layer of the skin and the laser is then used to heat the underlying layer to accelerate collagen production, giving the treated areas of the patient a fresh and young look.
